    Open VM Tools for unRAID 6

    It looks like you already had it installed. The only thing I can recommend if rename your existing packages directory, extract everything off the zip to a new packages directory. Delete the existing plugin, reboot, then install the updated plugin.

    Open VM Tools for unRAID 6

    Well, v6.6.6 is sticking around longer than I thought it would. I updated the plugin to use VMWare Tools 10.3.5. https://drive.google.com/drive/u/1/folders/1pyHgCjGdPzLZ2YUn3ktUfewnft3Gped6
  3. But, now it is somewhat broken. You really should be able to boot barenetal unraid, without ESXi, just in case you run into real issues and nobody will help you because you are virtualized. Controllers are dirt cheap.
  4. RDMs are a bad idea. Why don’t you pass through the entire controller?

    Can someone recommend a 16 drive server case?

    SuperMicro 836. Some good deals on ebay recently.

    Backupdestination for Friends and Family

    I feel the exact same way. I set up Minio and Duplicati purely as a replacement for CrashPlan for my family members. I do not want to get into supporting them using NextCloud. That being said, I have NextCloud up and running my personal use.

    Optane 900P for cache drive?

    Pretty serious overkill, IMHO.

    Unraid OS version 6.6.1 available

    I have the same issue. works fine on 6.5.3, cannot connect on 6.6.1. I ended up joining unRAID to my domain, which I did not want to do. However, I discovered last night that unjoins itself after each reboot.
  11. Upgraded from 6.5.3 to 6.6.1 and I can no longer access unRAID by name ( \\nas or \\nas.domainname.org ). I can access it via IP address. If I change the name to anything other than "NAS", for instance, "TOWER", and I update DNS, I can access by name without issue. I have looked for cached credentials. There are none. I even deployed a new Windows 10 VM that was not joined to my domain, and it had the very same symptoms. I can ping by name, and manage the web GUI by name, so I know it's not a DNS issue. Yes, I know that I'm running under ESXi. I get the very same results running baremetal. I even tried a new flash drive. It works just fine, until I got change the name to "NAS". I also tried it with 6.6.0 and that has the same result as well. I have attached diagnostics. Thanks! nas-diagnostics-20180930-1343.zip

    Open VM Tools for unRAID 6

    Updated for unRAID 6.6.1. VMWare Tools version 10.2.5. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1pyHgCjGdPzLZ2YUn3ktUfewnft3Gped6 The above share is not a direct link. I decided to share out the folder, so folks can look for older versions if necessary. This folder contains the current plugin, as well as all of the Packages necessary. I attempted to update all of the packages, but I kept running in to issues. I will continue to work on that and get as many updated as possible.
  13. You need to passthru either the USB key itself, or I prefer the entire USB controller, since I dont need it anywhere else. You also need to passthru your HBAs.
